opinion needed 08 M3

Local dealer in town got a 2008 M3 in and I'm looking to buy it. They took it on trade and the thing is pristine.
They are asking $36k. 77000 Km (Canadian Car).

Mdrive
Executive
Nav
Manual tranny
EDC

What do you think? This would be my first BMW. Price seems good and for the miles again it's in excellent shape.

The price is good for a Canadian car, mileage is still fine.
As long as the car is in a good condition and it drives well (and of course, check the Carproof and check for the thickness of paint on all panels; personally, I would never buy an accidented car, but some people are okay with it I guess).

Only downside is the Nav (idrive) on the 08 models. It sucks compared to the more updated nav, but then again, I highly doubt a nav can make anyone to NOT buy an M3.

In conclusion, GO FOR IT as long as it drives well with no accident/re-sprayed panels

Ya the I drive isn't enough to make me not buy the car. It's in impeccable shape honestly.... I drove it the other day and it rides like a champ. They are putting it up on the hoist today to safety it so it will likely get new brakes etc....

I'm going to put in an offer w/ Extended service. thanks for your input sir.

Go for it. I have an '08. Only you know how important updated idrive is for your circumstances, but in the rare instances I actually want/need to use nav, the '08 version is fine. Mechanical soundness, condition, much more important.

The one bit of tech that I really wish I had -- the aux + usb in the center console that allows ipod control through the idrive. I have only aux.

can't offer pricing input because I'm unfamiliar with the Canadian market and I'm feeling too lazy to do the very basic conversions.

I bought it. They gave a bit on price. Did the front brakes and all the drive train fluids. Along with a couple other things.

Also had cold weather package which they missed in the listing. It was too clean to pass on. My very first BMW and it's an M. Been wanting one since I was 16. I'm psyched!

Thanks everyone for their input and advice. If it ever stops snowing I'll be in good shape.

I think the cold weather package is standard on Canadian cars. Maybe that's why it's not listed.

Your first BMW is an M3? You'll be spoiled. Starting with the Big Dog.

Photos finally

So it was finally nice enough to do a hand wash and post some photos of my recent acquisition.

This is my first BMW and the car I've wanted for close to 15 years.

Exterior is in very good condition for a 6 year old vehicle. There is so ex slight rash on the paint that needs to be repaired. But overall a 9/10. Interior is flawless.
